Whale Watching and Marine Wildlife
A journey to whales
October 11, 2022
What better way to experience the natural beauty of the waters off Sitka, Alaska, than with a small group of fellow travelers guided by an expert mariner? I cannot think of any. And did we see whales? Oh yes, lots of them. Humpbacks, they were, and they are magnificent creatures. Not only whales, but sea lions and sea otters were plentiful. And lets not forget the birds. Wonderful. But it wasn't just the marine mammals and aviary that made this journey special. From start to finish, we were under the wing of an experienced and knowledgeable guide who not only knew where to find these animals but who was able to explain their habitat, their feeding habits, and their migratory nature. The advantage of being on a small boat with only five guests cannot be overemphasized. To have such "personalized" attention was wonderful and the experience was unmatched by anything else I could have imagined on the water. I highly recommend this adventure.
